ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders says he has the best odds to beat a Republican nominee in the Presidential race telling Face the Nation that rival Hillary Clinton's track record on the Iraq war and trade, shows that her "her judgment is not quite as high as it should be," while adding "I want to get away from this stuff." "We were attacked pretty harshly by the Clinton campaign saying, I was not qualified," Sanders said. "And we responded by saying, you know what, a candidate who receives an enormous amount of money from special interests, a candidate who voted for the war in Iraq, a candidate who voted for virtually every disastrous trade policy -- which of course lost millions of jobs, well, you know what, maybe her judgment is not quite as high as it should be," he said. He concluded saying "I want to get away from this stuff, I respect Hillary Clinton, I have known her for 25 years." Sanders won the Democratic nominating contest in Wyoming on Saturday, besting Clinton and adding to a string of recent victories as the two candidates gear up for a crucial matchup in New York. Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, has won seven out of the last eight state-level Democratic nominating contests, trying to chip away at Clinton's big lead in the number of delegates needed to secure the party's nomination. New York holds its contest on April 19 and where a total of 291 delegates are up for grabs, more than 10 percent of the tally needed to win the party's nomination.
